I actually like seeing TTA posts on facebook, and always check out the links and info on the post. Fair enough, I mighten look at it straight away, but I'll make a mental note and go back to it later. You guys post some really interesting stuff and I enjoy reading it.
So I for one think there's no problem with it.. Others might disagree??

Me, I click on some of the links, ignore most of them. But they're there, they keep drawing people back, and if they're interested in them chances are they'll remember TTA as the gateway page.

And yeah, it would be nice to have more TTA news, but Marc posts all he's given, so it's up to us to be more newsworthy I guess.

I just checked and it doesn't seem to require an account, so I don't think so.

bit.ly just tracks how many times the link is used and even tells me where the link was found (fb, twitter, or any site that I post it really.)

I find it quite useful. Things that never get clicked I try not to repeat.

Found it, tried it and it seemed to work. Thanks Marc.
Not sure what I'll do with it yet.

I confess to having deleted myself form Facebook.

I don't know if this makes any sense or not, but I actually felt it weighing me down. So much junk from so many people.

If I start another account I will seriously limit the amount of "friends" I have.

Conversely, I think it's useful when it comes to keeping up with what's going on with things like IZ, Analog, Locus, the Labour party, Best Housekeeping, Guns and gunning, Clarion workshops, etc.

I think bands/writers etc can have fan pages as well. Is that correct? Is that the kind of page IZ has?

I think so Dave. Marc set it up for us.
I use it to publicize the magazines and, hopefully, attract readers. Have a look at it as you don't have to be a FaceBooker to see it, only if you want to post on it.
Let me know if the link doesn't work for you.

The link works fine. I had no idea it was possible to view a Facebook page without actually being on FB

Cheers!

I'm sure it's just a matter of time until I find myself with a FB page again though. I can't hide from the world forever :D

That isn't always the case. It depends on the privacy settings of the page. You can set it up so that it is only available in a certain region or above a certain age. Or so that only fans are allowed to see.

If a writer (band/company/game/book) wants to make a fan page some one with an fb account has to set it up.

If you want to set one up and need some pointers just give me a shout =D

While on Facebook, look at your URL address; if you see http: instead of https: then you don't have a secure session and you can be hacked.

Go to Account > Account Settings > Account Security and click Change. Check at least the first setting, because FB defaults to the non-secure setting.

Thanks for the tip, Tony. I didn't know about that, and interestingly it shows you your recent activity which includes location information. And one of my locations was a very long way from where I live, which I found most bizarre! Fortunately it allows you to end the activity of the particular location.
